I recently decided to cut back on photos, especially on smaller items or generic items that may not need a photo. That being said I definitely think you should include photos for anything major.

I’ve always wondered about the amount of pictures I take. I know there are a lot of guys who take pictures that aren’t in the report. I always provide all the pictures I take. Should be an interesting topic.

Welcome back to our forum, Zachary Gillespie!.. Enjoy participating. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

I can understand that. I’ve heard of that as well. I personally don’t. I take about 250-300 pictures per inspection. I used to take more. many of these are pictures of the four sides of the home, rooms, appliances, etc. Somethings I put in, such as the air conditioner, water heater, etc. But I don’t see much point in sending them all of them by default. If a client asked me, I would make them a CD of them.

I do much (~200 photos, but use < 100) like Chris Hall, but wanted to see this webinar to hear what was presented.

Trouble is, when I try to register, the system gives me an error message and says to try again in a few seconds… for two days now.

Anyone else getting that?

I take photos in lieu of notes (terrible handwriting). I do not take pictures which will simply duplicate listing photos (rooms). I don’t put all the photos in the report because it’s unnecessary. For example I take photos of serial numbers. There is a place on my report to enter the serial number, which I do. The photo is then superfluous and just loads up the report. MD requires I save reports and notes for 5 years so everything goes in a folder saved on a backup drive. Iuse the 2 digit year month and day followed by the client’s initial for a report number. That way every report is stored in the order done.
